    if your guility,you'll get caught eventually..back to your question,yes only if new evidence is brought to light
    Yes. With DNA today we can identify someone who committed a serious crime, and finally bring them to justice. The system needs to be scrutinized. If the evidence is so shabby why even attempt to convict? Most people in prison belong there but there are innocent people in their as well, mostly the poor without proper representation.
    No, unless new evidence is found.
    Even with new evidence if, you were charged with the same crime twice that's double jeopardy and I personally believe anything like murder, rape, child molestation, etc. shouldn't have a double jeopardy clause. I don't care how many trials one faces if, you did the crime in these instances you should do the time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Not unless you change the constitution!

    I am for the rule myself

    It's more of an opinoin question ninnet. Do you agree with double jeopardy as a law or do you disagree with it.
